Doraemon the Anime Cat Character Hat Crochet Pattern (4)

Pattern Instructions:
*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my free Easy Peas Pre-Teen / Teen / Women Double Crochet Beanie Pattern, which you can find  here as a foundation for the projectWant it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size of the free pattern you want for your project.

Hat Base: in main color bright blue yarn

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice

Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start creating your beanie into a Doraemon hat. :)

Hat Trim: using red contrast color yarn

This colored contrast trim will be used to represent his red collar.  Attach red yarn to last round worked in beanie where you left off with a sl st in to the st.  Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st and each of the st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. Fasten off.

Face Area: using white yarn
Row 1: Ch 14, place 2 dc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 dc in next 10 ch, and 2 dc in remaining ch. Ch 2 and turn. (14 dc)
Row 2: Place 2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next 12 st and 2 dc in last st. Ch 2 and turn. (16 dc)
Rows 3- 4: Place 1 dc in 1st st and each of the following 15 st across. Ch 2 and turn. (16 dc)
Row 5: Place 1 dc in 2nd st, skipping 1st st, 1 dc in each of the following 14 st across. (15 dc)
Row 6: Place 1 dc in 2nd st, skipping 1st st, 1 dc in each of the following 13 st across. Ch 1 and turn. (14 dc)
Row 7: Sl st in 1st st, 1 sc in next st, 1 hdc in each of the following 10 st across, 1 sc in next st and sl st in the remaining st. Do not turn.
Row 8: Now work this row around the perimeter of the face area continuing from where you left off in previous round. This will give the defined edges you see in pattern pictures. Starting in side of 1st st around corner place 2 sc, place 1 sc in each st down until bottom corner, *place (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in to the corner*, work 1 sc in each st across bottom until next bottom corner repeating * in to the corner, continue working 1 sc in each st until you reach the 1st st from previous Row. Place 1 sc in same st as 1st and sl st in the top of the 1st st from previous round.
Make sure you leave an extra long yarn tail for this feature as you will need to stitch it on around the whole period and I sometimes anchor mine with a few random stitches along the middle to keep the large features from bubbling up. Once you have measured out enough of a yarn tail to do this, cut yarn and pull through last loop. Put this piece to the side until needed in assembly steps.

The feature above works well with toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month old hats, do the following steps instead of those above for your hat:

Row 1: Ch 8, place 2 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 hdc in next 4 ch, and 2 hdc in remaining ch. Ch 2 and turn. (8 hdc)
Row 2: Place 2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in next 6 st and 2 hdc in last st. Ch 2 and turn. (10 hdc)
Rows 3: Place 1 hdc in 1st st and each of the following 9 st across. Ch 2 and turn. (10 hdc)
Row 4: Place 1 hdc in 2nd st, skipping 1st st, 1 hdc in each of the following 5 st across and hdctog last 2 st. Ch 1 and turn.  (8 hdc)
Row 5: Sl st in 1st st, 1 sc in next st, 1 hdc in each of the following 4 st across, 1 sc in next st and sl st in the remaining st. Do not turn. 
Row 6: Now work this row around the perimeter of the face area continuing from where you left off in previous round. This will give the defined edges you see in pattern pictures. Starting in side of 1st st around corner place 2 sc, place 1 sc in each st down until bottom corner, *place (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in to the corner*, work 1 sc in each st across bottom until next bottom corner repeating * in to the corner, continue working 1 sc in each st until you reach the 1st st from previous Row. Place 1 sc in same st as 1st and sl st in the top of the 1st st from previous round.
Make sure you leave an extra long yarn tail for this feature as you will need to stitch it on around the whole period and I sometimes anchor mine with a few random stitches along the middle to keep the large features from bubbling up. Once you have measured out enough of a yarn tail to do this, cut yarn and pull through last loop. Put this piece to the side until needed in assembly steps.

Eye whites (Make 2): using white yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1 before placing the following st in the circle in this order: (2 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 3 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc). Pull the ovalish shaped circle closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (12 st total)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in 1st 2 st, 2 dc in next 3 st, 1 dc in next 3 st, 2 dc in next 3 st, and 1 dc in remaining st. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (18 st total)
Fasten off.

The feature above works well with toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month old hats, only make Round 1 and not Round 2 as it states above.

Eye liner Trim: using black yarn
Attach with a sl st black yarn on outside rim of finished eye white. Ch 1 before making a sl st in that st and each of the following st around. I did make (sl st, ch 1 , sl st) in top most and bottom most stitches to help round it out a little.
Repeat process for second eye.

Eye pupils (Make 2): using black yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1 before placing the following st in this order in to the circle: (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc). Ch 1 and then sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (4 sc)
Before you cut the yarn, leave a tail length long enough to be able to sew this eye pupil on to the eye white during assembly, cut yarn and pull through last loop on hook. Place to side until needed.
Repeat above steps for second eye pupil.

The feature above works well with toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month old hats, do the following steps instead of those above for your hat:
Make a chain of 4 and sl st in the last ch from hook. You will sew this on in a ovalish circle during assembly.
Before you cut the yarn, leave a tail length long enough to be able to sew this eye pupil on to the eye white during assembly, cut yarn and pull through last loop on hook. Place to side until needed.

Shining light spots on eyes (Make 2): using white yarn
You can just make a large knot for these. What I did is made a ch of 2 and then made a double knot around it as a base for an easy knot. 😉
Leave a short tail that’s long enough to secure it on to the eye pupil during assembly steps before you cut the yarn. Place to side until needed
Repeat for second eye.

Instructions the same for smaller sized hats.

Mouth lines / Smile: using black yarn

Downward mouth line:
Make a chain of 7.
Before you cut the yarn, leave a tail length long enough to be able to sew this chain length on to the face area during assembly, cut yarn and pull through last loop on hook. Place to side until needed.

Smile line:
Make a chain of 18.
Before you cut the yarn, leave a tail length long enough to be able to sew this chain length on to the face area during assembly, cut yarn and pull through last loop on hook. Place to side until needed.

The two features above works well with toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month old hats, do the following steps instead of those above for your hat:
Instead of making chains for the mouth lines like in steps above, put aside a length of black yarn that you can freehand stitch on the mouth lines in place during assembly.

Whiskers (Make 6): using black yarn
Make a chain of 7 with black yarn.
Before you cut the yarn, leave a tail length long enough to be able to sew this chain length on to the face area during assembly, cut yarn and pull through last loop on hook. Place to side until needed.
Repeat for the remaining 5 whiskers needed.

The feature above works well with toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month old hats, do the following steps instead of those above for your hat:
Instead of making chains for the whisker lines like in steps above, put aside a length of black yarn that you can freehand stitch on the whisker lines in place during assembly.

Nose: using red yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 8 hdc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in the round. (8 hdc)
Before you cut the yarn, leave a tail length long enough to be able to sew this on to the face area during assembly, cut yarn and pull through last loop on hook. Place to side until needed.

The feature above works well with toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month old hats, do the following steps instead of those above for your hat:

Shining light spot on nose: using white yarn
Make a ch of 3 and sl st in the 3rd ch from hook. That’s it.
Just make sure you have leave a short tail to be able to sew this in place on the nose during assembly. Cut yarn and place to side until needed.

The feature above works well with toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month old hats, do the following steps instead of those above for your hat:
Just make a a large knot like you did with the shining spots for the eyes instead of the small chain circle.

Eye Assembly Steps:
The following steps require these face features:
2 – eye whites with trim
2- eye pupils
2 – shining light eye spots

Taking the yarn tail left on one of the shining light spots, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in place on to the eye pupil.  You can reference my pictures on where I placed mine but you can move them to however you like.  Once the spot is sewn in place, pull yarn to the backside of the eye pupil and fasten off.  Repeat process for second shining light spot.
Now take the black yarn tail from one eye pupil and use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the pupil in place in the center of your eye white.  Once you have secured them in place, pull the yarn to the backside of the eye white and fasten off.
Now your eyes should be fully assembled with one yarn tail on each.  Do not fasten this off as you will use it to attach to the beanie hat during assembly. Place to side until needed.

Doraemon the Anime Cat Character Hat Crochet Pattern (2)

Face Area Assembly:
The following steps require these face features:
1- face area
1- nose
1 – shining light spot for nose
2- mouth lines
6 – whisker lines

Taking the yarn tail on shining light spot for nose and use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the light spot in place in desired place on the red nose.  You can see my picture above on how I placed mine.  Once it’s in place, pull yarn to the backside of the nose and fasten off.
Next take the yarn tail left on the nose and using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle sew the nose in place on your face area.  I placed mine just above the center after laying down the mouth chain lines to see how much room they would take. :)  Once you have secure it in place, pull the yarn to the backside of the face area and fasten off.
Taking the tail from the downward part of the mouth chain, use your yarn needle to sew it in place straight down from the nose.  I tucked the start of my chain just under the edge of the nose.  Once you have secure it in place, pull the yarn to the backside of the face area and fasten off.
Now that that line is in place you can use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and take the yarn tail on second smile piece to sew the smile chain in a upwards facing curve. Think :)  Once you have secure it in place, pull the yarn to the backside of the face area and fasten off.
Now all that is left is placing your whiskers on to the face area.  So using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle take a yarn tail from one whisker chain and sew it in desired place on face area.  I started with the middle whisker on each side and then worked from that so I wouldn’t run out of space.  I also stitched it right to the side of the face area so it looked like it was overlapping but that was my preference, it’s not necessary. Once you have secure it in place, pull the yarn to the backside of the face area and fasten off.  You want to repeat this until all 6 whiskers are attached.

Finishing off:
Now that you have completed the face area assembly from previous steps, you should only have one yarn tail left.  Taking your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and this yarn tail, sew the face area in place on the front of your beanie hat.  When doing large areas like this, once I secure the perimeter in place, I would make several small stitches near the center to keep it from bubbling up. :)  Once you have sewn it on, pull the yarn to the inside of the hat and fasten off.
Next take the remaining yarn tail on one assembled eye and use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the eye in place where it is overlapping on top of face area.  Depending on how much space you have, you can move it around to your liking.  I placed just under half on top of the face area.   Once you have secured the eye in place, pull the yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off.  Repeat this process for the second eye.
Now just take a few moments to look over your hat for any loose ends or yarn tails you might of missed during process.  If you find any, weave in and fasten off.
All done! :)   One Doraemon crochet hat ready to wear or gift. I made mine for my stepdaughter who is a big anime fan.

Here are some additional pictures I have taken to show how the Doraemon hat looks once worn:

Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story Character Hat Crochet Pattern

Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story is such a great character for children to watch. To infinity and beyond! Okay, I admit it. I really like him as well. :) I decided to see how a character hat of him would turn out for my younger nephew who is a big Toy Story fan as a surprise. It didn’t turn out exactly as I had expected but I do like it. I would recommend this character hat to advanced beginners and up but if you are new to character hats don’t be discouraged. There are quite a few small pieces that need stitching to be assembled which is why this sat in my works in progress pile for so long. I really hate sewing stuff together. I hope you enjoy this pattern for the Buzz fan in your life and please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions. Happy crafting!

P.S. Just in case you have no idea who this guy is, you can learn more about him here.  Here is the inspiration picture I used to create this hat:

This feature works well on toddler, youth, preteen / teen, womens and mens sized hats. If you are making newborn to 12 months sized hats, make a chain of 6 instead of 10 as pattern calls for above.

Chin swirl: using dark brown yarn
For chin swirl, just put to side a small length of your dark brown yarn that was also used for eyebrows to the side. You will be freehand stitching it on face area during assembly. Since I was using a very skinny baby yarn for my darkest brown yarn I made a small chain with a tiny crochet hook to sew it in place.

Instructions are same for smaller sized hats.

Eye Assembly Steps:
The following steps require these face features:
2 – eye pupils
2-  eye colors
2- eye whites

Taking the yarn tail from one eye pupil, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the pupil in place on top of one of the eye colors. You can just center it or make the eyes look in one direction. You can see how I placed mine in my pictures.  Once sewn on, pull yarn to the back of the eye color and fasten off. Repeat process for second pupil.
Now take tail from eye color and using the  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle, sew the eye color on to the eye white in desired location.  Once secured in place, pull yarn to the back of the eye white and fasten off.  Repeat process for second eye color.
You now should only have one long white yarn tail from each assembled eye. Do not fasten this off as this is how you will be attaching your eyes to the face area in face area assembly below. If you have any other yarn tails left on eyes that you may have missed during process, fasten them off now.
Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story Character Hat Crochet Pattern (4)
Face Area Assembly:
The following steps require that you have assembled all the above mentioned pieces. You should have
1- Face Area
2- Assembled eyes
1- Nose
1 – Smile
2- Eyebrows
Small length of yarn for chin swirl

I like to work from the bottom up when doing features so I can judge the space needed for them better so starting off at the bottom of the face area for assembly.
Taking the small amount of dark brown yarn you set aside for the chin swirl, and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle freehand stitch on a small swirl on the lowest part of the chin area like you can see on picture of Buzz Lightyear above and you can reference my pictures on how I placed them on my hat. Once finished sewing it on, pull yarn to back of the face area and fasten off.
Next take the tail from Buzz Lightyear’s mouth chain and use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in desired place on face area.  I like the off center smile I see in some of his illustrations so that is how I placed mine in the pictures but feel free to do what you like the best.  Once attached, pull yarn to back of the face area and fasten off.
Take tail from his nose and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew his nose just above the mouth in a center location of the face area with skinny part on top. You don’t want to attach this too high or it will interfere with your spacing for eyes and eyebrows. Once it is securely in place, pull yarn to the back of face area and fasten off.
Now using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle, take the tail from one assembled eye from earlier steps and sew it in desired location on one side of nose near top. Once your eyes are fully attached, pull yarn to backside of face area and fasten off. Repeat steps for second assembled eye on opposite side of nose as first.
All that is left now is to add to Buzz Lightyear’s face area is his eyebrows. There is not right or wrong way to shape his eyebrows. If you Google him you will see that he is very expressive with his eyebrows. I personally like his one eyebrow lifted look so I used that as inspiration for my own hat. You can look at pictures above to see how I placed his eyebrows on my character hat. Taking the tail left of one eyebrow chain, use your  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle, to stitch the eyebrow over one of the eyes in desired location and shape formation. Once sewn in place, pull yarn to back of face area before fastening off. Repeat process for second eyebrow over other eye.
Now your face area should be fully assembled. There should only be one yarn tail left on this part of your Buzz hat. A long face area colored yarn tail which you will use in following step. If you see any other yarn tails on face area that you may have missed during assembly, go ahead and fasten them off now.

Finishing off:
Now that you have assembled the face area for your Buzz Lightyear hat, take the long yarn tail left on face area from above step and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in desired location on the front of the beanie hat. I use safety pins or straight pins to pin large features like this in place so I can just sew around without stopping to count stitches or judge space to make sure it’s even. It can take a minute or two at the beginning but saves in the long run. I also find that once I run around the perimeter I do a few little stitches through the middle section of the area I’m attaching to keep it anchored down which prevents the feature from bubbling up.
Once you have fully sewn the face area on, pull your leftover yarn tail to the inside of the beanie hat before fastening off.
Double check your work now for any extra tails or loose ends you might of missed. Fasten any off if any are found.
All done! One super cute Buzz Lightyear crochet character hat ready to wear. :)

Here are some pictures taken to show how Buzz Lightyear hat looks once all done:

  Charlie Brown's Snoopy the Dog Character Hat Crochet Pattern

When making hats for my mother to wear during storytime in her classroom I had to make her a Snoopy hat just because who doesn’t like Snoopy? 😉  He is one of my favorite cartoon characters from my youth and I wanted to see how he would turn out in a crochet character hat. I’m pretty happy with how he turned out and I can’t wait for the the school year to start back up so that the kids can see the Snoopy hat.  I have a list that will keep me busy of book characters my Mom would love to have hats of for reading time so good thing I have a little bit of summer left to catch up!  Before we know it school will be back in session and I will be neck deep in holiday gift projects. :)

I hope you like my interpretation of Snoopy into a crochet character hat.  This is a beginner friendly pattern  and up so if you are new to making crochet character hats or crochet in general give it a try.  All you need to know is how to work in the round for the majority of this project.  You will be required to use a large blunt -eye yarn darning needle to sew the features on to the hat once crocheted.  If you have any questions, please let me know.  Happy crafting!

P.S. Here is the Snoopy picture I used for inspiration while designing this hat pattern.  I found it uplifting as well. :)

Charlie Brown's Snoopy the Dog Character Hat Crochet Pattern (25)

Pattern Instructions:
*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my free Easy Peas Pre-Teen / Teen / Women Double Crochet Beanie Pattern, which you can find  here as a foundation for the projectWant it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size of the free pattern you want for your project.

Hat Base: in main color white yarn 

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start creating your beanie into a Snoopy hat. :)

Snout back *optional*: using white yarn
Note: This step is an optional step but one I highly recommend as it will prevent stuffing from slipping between stitches on to the wearers head when wearing hat as it stretches when worn. It can make it a bit itchy so I take this extra step to keep it where the stuffing belongs. :) 
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc in to the circle. Pull the circle closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in 1st st and 2 dc in each of the following 9 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next st* repeating * process for following 18 st around. Sl st in top of 1st st. (30 dc)
Fasten off and place to side until needed in assembly.

The above feature works great on youth, teen / preteen, womens and men sized hats.  For toddler sized hats I recommend scaling down the features by using a G or H hook instead or following infant sized hats instructions.  For infant sized hats (newborn to 12 months), instead of the instructions above, do the following steps instead:
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 hdc in to the circle. Pull the circle closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 hdc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 hdc in 1st st and 2 hdc in each of the following 9 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (20 hdc)

Snout: using white yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc in to the circle. Pull the circle closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in 1st st and 2 dc in each of the following 9 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next st* repeating * process for following 18 st around. Sl st in top of 1st st. (30 dc)
Rounds 4-5: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in each of the following 29 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (30 dc)
Round 6: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each of the following 29 st around. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. (30 sc)
Leave a long enough yarn tail to sew your snout on to the beanie hat during assembly *and* if you choose to do the snout back to sew the snout back on the snout opening before attaching to hat. Cut yarn once you measure out length, pull tail through last loop on hook and place to side until needed.

The above feature works great on youth, teen / preteen, womens and men sized hats.  For toddler sized hats I recommend scaling down the features by using a G or H hook instead or following infant sized hats instructions.  For infant sized hats (newborn to 12 months), instead of the instructions above, do the following steps instead:

Round 4: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each of the following 29 st around. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. (30 sc)

Ch 3 and sl st in the last ch from hook.
Cut yarn leaving a short yarn tail long enough to be able to sew on to your beanie hat during assembly, pull yarn through loop on hook and place to side until needed.

The above feature works great on youth, teen / preteen, womens and men sized hats.  For toddler sized hats I recommend scaling down the features by using a G or H hook instead or following infant sized hats instructions.  For infant sized hats (newborn to 12 months), instead of the instructions above, make a large knot instead of the chain the instructions call for above.

Black nose: using black yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1 before placing the following st in this order: (2 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 3 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc). Pull the circle fully closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (12 st total)

Ear Backs and Assembly (Make 2): using black yarn and completed ear fronts from previous steps
Repeat Rows 1-10 from Ear fronts but do not fasten off at end of Row 6 as you have with the ear fronts. Ch 1 and turn. Place one completed ear front in front of the ear back you are working on, lining up the stitches.
Row 11: 1 sc in each st around placing (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in both top corners of ears and 2 sc in the bottom 5 st to round out ear bottoms.
Leave a long yarn tail that will be used to sew your ear on to the Snoopy hat and secure it in place before you cut yarn. Pull yarn through loop on hook and place to side until needed in assembly.
Repeat process for second ear.

Eyebrows (Make 2): using black yarn
Make a chain of 5. Leave a tail long enough to sew these chains in to eyebrow arches above eyes on beanie hat (I normally guesstimate 2 to 3 times the length of chain I am sewing on) before cutting yarn and pulling through last loop on hook. Place to side until needed in assembly.
Repeat process for second eyebrow.

The above feature works great on youth, teen / preteen, womens and men sized hats.  For toddler sized hats I recommend scaling down the features by using a G or H hook instead or following infant sized hats instructions.  For infant sized hats (newborn to 12 months), instead of the instructions above, place to the side two lengths of yarn long enough to freehand stitch on the eyebrows.  If you prefer a chain you can use a small hook to make a chain out of your yarn instead.

Smile: using black yarn
Make a chain of 25. Leaving a length of yarn at the end of the chain long enough to sew it in place on hat (I normally guesstimate 2 to 3 times the length of chain I am sewing on) before cutting yarn, pulling through last loop on the hook and place to side until needed.

The above feature works great on youth, teen / preteen, womens and men sized hats.  For toddler sized hats I recommend scaling down the features by using a G or H hook instead or following infant sized hats instructions.  For infant sized hats (newborn to 12 months), instead of the instructions above, do the following steps instead:  Make a chain of 16 instead of 25 as steps above call for.

Finishing off steps:
The following steps require that you have assembled all the above mentioned pieces. You should have
1- beanie hat
2- eyes
2 – eyebrows
1 – snout piece
1 – snout back (optional)
1 – black nose
2 – assembled ears
1 – shining light spot on nose

Charlie Brown's Snoopy the Dog Character Hat Crochet Patterm

Starting off with the nose/snout assembly, take the white yarn tail from the shining light spot and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in place on to the black nose piece. No worries on where exactly to put it as it changes in Snoopy’s images based on how his head is tilted, facing etc. You can see in the pictures with this pattern where I place the shining light spot on my Snoopy hat. Once you have it secured in place, pull yarn to the back side of the nose and fasten off.
Next take the yarn tail from your black nose and use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the nose in desired place on front of nose/snout piece. I placed mine in the center top area so that when it’s stuffed it will be on the end of the snout but near the top like I saw in pictures of Snoopy online. Once you have it secured in place, pull yarn to the back side of the nose/snout piece and fasten off.
Now we are ready to put together the nose/snout piece. If you decided to do the optional snout back, use these instructions. If you chose not to do this feature part, skip to the next paragraph for instructions. Taking the tail left on your nose/snout piece, use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the snout back piece over the opening on your snout piece. I just line up my stitches before stitching back and forth until around the whole circle. You want to stop about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way around to stuff your snout piece. Do not overstuff as this will weigh it down too much causing sagging in surrounding area of beanie or bubble up the back making it awkward to attach or wear. Once you have it stuffed to your liking, finish sewing the opening closed. Now you are going to use the remaining yarn tail to attach the fully assembled nose/snout piece on to the beanie hat near the bottom of the front of your beanie. Once you have secured his snout in place, pull the yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off.
Taking the yarn tail left on one of his eyes, use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the eye in desired location above the attached snout. Once secure, pull yarn to the inside of the hat and fasten off. Repeat process with second eye.
Now Taking the yarn tail left on one of his eyebrows, use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the eye in desired location above one eye in an upside down curve. You can see my pictures on how I placed my own. Once secure, pull yarn to the inside of the hat and fasten off. Repeat process with second eyebrow.
Next up take the tail of the chain you made for his smile and using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle stitch his giant grin in place. You don’t have to center it like mine as he is often also seen with an off center grin so you can do that to if you like. Once secure, pull yarn to inside of the hat and fasten off.
Taking the yarn tail from one of his assembled ears, use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle  to sew the ear in place on the side of the hat. I made mine a little lower so they would hang just past hat, but if you want them shorter you can place them higher so there is not an overhang. It’s all in personal preference. On features like this, I tend to run another set of stitches on the inside to reinforce joining but it isn’t necessary to the hat’s function. I just get paranoid about things coming apart. Once you have secured it in place, pull the yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off.
Take the time now to double check your hat for any loose ends or tails that you might have missed during the assembly process. If you find any weave in and fasten off. All done!

Here are some additional pictures I had taken to show how this Snoopy the dog hat looks worn once it is completed from different angles:

Wow Wow Wubbzy Character Hat Crochet Pattern - free character hat crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com

I have to admit I’ve never watched a single Wubbzy episode but have seen some ads or commercials. I thought he looked pretty cute and would make a darling addition to my niece’s growing hat collection. This is one of less time consuming of the hats I have done recently so it makes a great last minute project or just a project if you want something to start to complete in a short amount of time. This is an advanced beginner and up recommended crochet pattern but don’t get discouraged if you are new to crochet or just character hat making. This is a good starter hat and looks more complicated than it actually is to make. Happy crafting!

If you have no idea who Wubbzy is, check out some additional information on him here.

Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start making your hat into Wubbzy. :)

Ear Bottom Base *optional* (Make 2): using main color yellow or golden yarn
This is an optional step but one I always recommend when making hats with features that are stuffed. Why? Well it keeps the stuffing from oozing in to the hat when it stretches while wearing it and off the wearers head while lengthening the life durability of your hat. It can be a bit itchy when it does. So taking the extra few minutes to make this feature will be worth it later on.

Note: I only had very thin baby yarn in light gray so I made mine a ch 6 as seem in pictures but ch 4 works with the regular thickness of yarn used in project

The above feature works well on toddler, youth, preteen/teen, womens and mens sized beanie hats.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats do the following steps instead of those above:
 For infant sized hats, just make a large knot with a short yarn tail to secure this in place on eye during assembly.  Repeat for second light spot for eyes.

Finishing off:
Starting with his smile, take the yarn tail you left on the chain and use your  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew his smile in place in a “U” shape near the bottom center of your beanie hat. I placed mine just above the last sc round so it wouldn’t look too scrunched and I would still have room for other features but feel free to play around to see what you like best. Once you have secured that in place, pull yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off.
Now take the take the yarn tail you left on the shining light area chain for his nose and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the shining light area in an arc following the top curve of his nose like seen in his pictures. You can check my pics to see how I placed the ones my Wubbzy hat. Once you have secured that in place, pull yarn to the back side of the nose piece and fasten off.
Next you will use the black yarn tail left on his now assembled nose and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle  to sew the nose in desired place centered above the smile on your beanie hat. I just left a little space between his mouth and nose but again feel free to mix it up to find what you like the most. Once it all sewn in place, pull the remaining yarn tail to the inside of the hat and fasten off.
Taking the tail from one shining light spot for his eyes and the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle sew one light spot on to an eye piece in your desired location. I placed mine just off the center but he is portrayed with them in different spots depending on his body position so there is no wrong way to place them. Once that is done, pull yarn to the backside of the eye and fasten off. Repeat this process for the second eye spot. I sewed mine in more of a loose oval shape than a circle but feel free to make a simple circle.
Now take the black yarn tail left on one assembled eye and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it desired place above the nose. You can see his picture art and pictures of my completed hat to see how I place mine if you need some guidance on placement. Once it is fully sewn on, pull yarn to inside of beanie hat and fasten off. Repeat this process for the second eye.
Next up is his ears, if you chose to do the optional step of ear base bottoms work on this paragraph. If you chose to skip it, move on to next paragraph. You will want to line one ear base bottom with the stitches on the opening of one ear so you can close this feature up before attaching to hat. Taking your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and the yarn tail left on one ear, sew through both pieces at once attaching them together so that there will be no opening. You will want to stop 2/3 to 3/4 of the way around to add your fiberfill stuffing to your liking. Don’t overstuff the feature or the bottom will bubble making it sit awkwardly on top of the hat and it will weight it down. I just stuff mine until it has enough to keep it’s shape but is not hard or firm but my desired level of mushiness (yeah that’s my technical speak). Now you will use the remaining yarn to sew this completed ear in place on side of the top of the beanie hat. Once secured, pull yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off. I like to run an extra set of stitches along the inside of large features on the tops of my hats but it isn’t necessary. Just one of my tips. 😉 Now repeat process for second ear on opposite side of hat. You can skip next paragraph as it does not apply.
If you chose not to do the optional ear base bottom, you will be attaching the ears directly on to your beanie hat and stuffing while sewing it in place. So take your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and use the ear tail to secure one ear to the side of the top of the beanie hat. You will want to stop 2/3 to 3/4 of the way around to add your fiberfill stuffing to your liking. Don’t overstuff the feature or the bottom will bubble making it sit awkwardly on top of the hat and it will weight it down. I just stuff mine until it has enough to keep it’s shape but is not hard or firm but my desired level of mushiness (yeah that’s my technical speak). Once secured, pull yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off. I like to run an extra set of stitches along the inside of large features on the tops of my hats but it isn’t necessary. Just one of my tips. 😉 Now repeat process for second ear on opposite side of hat.

Adventure of Tintin Snowy the Dog Character Hat Crochet Pattern

After playing the Adventure of Tintin video game recently I was inspired to make Snowy into a character hat.  He is so cute.  I used his original drawings from the Tintin comic book illustrations to make this hat come to live versus the video game version.  I like how his features stand out more this way, especially with the eyebrows. You don’t have to be a comic or video game fan to like Snowy. He is an adorable all white terrier that is Tintin’s little sidekick on his adventures.  He makes a cute hat for children, boys or girls, adults, comic book lovers and more.  I made the hat in this pattern and as shown in pictures for one of my nephews.  I think I’m going to be making a matching Tintin hat in the near future too. :)
Don’t know about Snowy or Tintin? You can learn more about them here.
Want to check out the video game? This is the game I was talking about here. (P.S. It’s been out for awhile so it’s really cheap now!)
You can also watch episodes of his cartoon online here!
I hope you like this hat and enjoy making your own. Happy crafting!

Adventure of Tintin Snowy the Dog Character Hat Crochet Pattern (10)

Pattern Instructions:
*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my free Easy Peasy Youth Sized (Age 3-10 years old) Double Crochet Beanie  Hat Pattern which you can find  here as a foundation for the project. Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size of the free pattern you want for your project.

Hat Base: in main color white yarn 

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start creating your beanie into a Snowy hat. :)

Snout back *optional*: using white yarn
Note: This step is an optional step but one I highly recommend as it will prevent stuffing from slipping between stitches on to the wearers head when wearing hat as it stretches when worn. It can make it a bit itchy so I take this extra step to keep it where the stuffing belongs. :)
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc in to the circle. Pull the circle closed.  Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round.  (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in 1st st and 2 dc in each of the following 9 st.  Sl st in top of 1st st in round.  (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next st* repeating * around for next 18 st around.  Sl st in top of the 1st st in round.  (30 dc)
Fasten off.

The feature above works well on toddler, youth, preteen, teen, womens and men sized hats. For slightly smaller features for toddler you can always switch to a G or H hook if wanted. For newborn to 12 months old sized hats, do the following instructions instead of those given above:
Round 1:  In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 hdc in to the circle. Pull circle fully closed. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round.  (10 hdc)

Repeat the above process for second ear

Shining Light Spot for Nose: using white yarn

Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1 before placing the following st in this order: 1 sc, 2 hdc, 2 sc, 2 hdc, 1 sc. Pull ovalish circle closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (8 st total)

Eyebrows (Make 2): using black yarn

The feature above works well on toddler, youth, preteen, teen, womens and men sized hats. For slightly smaller features for toddler you can always switch to a G or H hook if wanted. For newborn to 12 months old sized hats, leave a small length of black yarn to the side to freehand stitch on skinny eyebrows on top of the eyes during assemble instead of chain instructions given above.

Finishing off steps:
Starting with the nose and snout assembly, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to take the yarn tail left on your shining light spot for nose and sew it on to the top left portion of the black nose. You can see my pictures on how I placed mine to look more like Snowy.  Once you have secured it in place, pull yarn to the backside of the black nose and fasten off.
Now take the black yarn tail left on your nose from previous step and using the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle sew it in desired place on the front of the nose snout.   I placed mine just above the center of the front so it would be more near top like comic pictures but feel free to play around with your placement to find what you like the best.  Once it is secure, pull yarn to the inside of the snout and fasten off.
Next up use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and the extra long white yarn tail on the snout piece to attach it to your snout to the bottom front of your beanie hat.  If you have opted to do the optional snout back, take the time to stitch that over opening first before sewing it on to the beanie hat.  You want to stop 2/3 to 3/4 of the way around stuff your nose/snout to desired fullness with the fiberfill stuffing.   Try not to overstuff this feature as it will bubble and can cause the area it is attached to on the beanie hat to sag or bunch. Not cute.  You just want to stuff it enough for it to hold the shape of the snout.   Once fully secured in place, pull yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off.
Now take one of the tails left on an eye and use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in desired place above the snout.  I placed mine just above the snout as you can see in pictures but you can move them around a little to see what works best for your hat.   Once sewn in place, pull yarn to inside of beanie hat and fasten off.  Repeat for second eye.
Next you are going to use the tail on one of Snowy’s eyebrows and use your yarn needle to sew it in place above one of the eyes.  I did mine in an upside “U” shape, kind of a curve, as you can see in pictures.  Once you have sewed them on to your liking, pull yarn to the inside of the hat and fasten off.  Repeat process for second eyebrow.
Now all that is left is to attach Snowy’s ears.  If you want your ears to be more upright like in most of his comics, place the ears closer to the top center of the beanie hat when attaching them.  I wanted my ear tips to flip forward like in comics so I didn’t use anything inside the ears to keep them fully upright like a pipe cleaner that I would use during ear assembly for bunnies and such.  If you want your ears to be more downward floppy, place more to the sides of the head.  You can also tilt the ears so the front concave part is facing forward while on the side of the head too.  You can see where I placed mine in pictures below.  Once your ear is sewn in place, pull yarn to inside.  At this point on features that are on top of hat, I run another short row of stitches and knots on the inside to support them but it’s mandatory.  Fasten off and repeat the process for the second ear.
Go ahead and double check your work for any tails or loose ends you might of missed during process.  If you find any, fasten them off now.
All done! One fun Snowy hat that Tintin fans and children will love. :)

Here are some pictures taken to show how this Snowy hat looks worn once completed:

Large Lighthouse Nautical Applique Crochet Pattern (4)

My Roy, my step grandfather since I was little, collects lighthouses so when I was brainstorming for ideas of a gift to make for his birthday I came up with a lighthouse nautical theme set of crocheted items that I can add to each holiday or special occasion.  I started out with this lighthouse applique then once I figured out how to do that I was able to move on.  For the first gift item on this occasion I put this applique on to a nap pillow. I actually made it a nautical striped pillow but this is the crochet pattern for just the applique as shown in pictures.

Below is a picture to show the lighthouse applique on his nap pillow.  I thought it was cute and wanted to show the size of how the lighthouse applique will turn out once finished in comparison to a standard throw pillow. :)  I will be adding that pattern to the site very soon. I just need to type it up. Happy crafting!

Note:  You want want to work the stitches along the edging around the yarn run up the side from dropping and picking up the colors so they are hidden in your trim. :)
Leave an extra long black yarn tail so that you can sew your completed applique on to your desired project when you are ready to attach it. Pull any other loose tails or yarn ends to the back of your lighthouse applique and finish off. You should only have the long black yarn tail to attach to your project left. All done.

Large Lighthouse Nautical Applique Crochet Pattern (5)

Decided where you want to attach your lighthouse applique?  Take your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and extra long black yarn tail left on your applique during assembly to secure your piece on to your project.  Once completely sewn on, pull your yarn to the inside or back side of your project and fasten off. That’s it.

Note:  If you are a bit OCD about lining your applique up or keeping it even like me, try using some straight pins or safety pins to lock it in place while you are sewing. Once you do this you can take most of the stress out of sewing it and checking it multiple times. Trust me, it saves me a lot of time and second guessing.  Here is what my process looks like before sewing it in place.

Reversible Coasters with Contrast Stitching Crochet Pattern

For my Gran’s birthday (4th of the July as you may guess due to the red, white and blue) I made her up with festive set of coasters to use with the new nautical set I have been working on for her and my grandfather, who shares the same birthday. Oh yeah and it’s their anniversary too. Guaranteed not to forget those dates ever. 😉
Coasters are an awesome little personalized gift you can make at the last minute, for basket stuffers, hostess gifts or just to jazz up your personal space. I used them on my computer desk to keep my drinks off the wood all the time.
For this coasters I made 2 sides (1 red and 1 blue) to each coaster before using white to stitch them in place.  I wanted to make them fun and a bit reminiscent of fireworks so I played around with different stitching patterns for each.  I kind of like how they turned out in the end.   It’s also a great example on the fact that there is no wrong way to stitch this pattern together, you do what you like the best.   Here is the crochet pattern for this set of coasters. Happy crafting!

I used red, white and blue yarn for the set in the pictures
(I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will do)
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern:
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet 

Pattern Instructions:

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The instructions are for a set of 4 coasters but you can change the amount to whatever you want. :)

Coaster Side A (Make 4): using main color A yarn (I used red)
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 dc)
Round 2:  Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in 1st st and in each of the following 9 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 1 before placing  *2 sc in 1st st, 1 sc in next*  repeating * process for remaining 18 st around.  Sl st in top of 1st st.  (30 sc)
Fasten off and place to side until assembly.

Coaster Side B (Make 4): using main color B yarn (I used blue)
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 dc)
Round 2:  Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in 1st st and in each of the following 9 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 1 before placing  *2 sc in 1st st, 1 sc in next*  repeating * process for remaining 18 st around.  Sl st in top of 1st st.  (30 sc)
Fasten off and place to side until assembly.

Reversible Coasters with Contrast Stitching Crochet Pattern

Finishing off coasters: using assembled sides and contrast stitching yarn (I used white)
Place 1 coaster side A and 1 coaster side B back to back with front sides facing out. You want to line up your stitches. I often just pop a safety pin to hold the pieces together so I can just concentrates on my contrast stitching instead of worrying about missing stitches etc. No worries if you get off one or two though as this pattern is very forgiving.
Now you want to take a long piece of your contrast yarn for stitching (I used white on the coaster set in my pictures for this pattern) and use your  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew through both pieces at once, securing them together.  There is no right way or wrong way to do this.  Because I was making these 4th of July set to resemble fireworks in a way, it’s a good way for you to see the different ways I stitch mine together. Again there is no right or wrong way to do this.  You just want to make sure you work between Rounds 2 and 3 at the minimum so your ends aren’t all floppy.  This will also make them lay more flat when not in use.  I often also stitch between Rounds 1 and 2 but it isn’t necessary.  I attached pictures of how the different stitching methods I used look when done.  I’m far from good at sewing so if I can do this, any beginner can.  Give it a try!

Here are some additional pictures I took of these coasters before gifting them:

3 Star Shaped Face Scrubbies with Strap Crochet Pattern (20)

For this batch of star shaped face scrubbies, I made them as part of a 4th of July gift for my Gran as it is also her birthday and wedding anniversary. So I used red, white and blue yarn to make three star scrubbies in her gift set. They are super easy to make and quick so you can make up a set in one sitting. They make great hostess or basket stuffing gifts even at the last minute.

Evil Bunny Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern (13)

This crochet pattern was a special design at the request of one of our guy friends. An evil bunny? in his favorite colors black and red? Why not? So I made up this hat just for him but had to keep the pattern to share with everyone of course. :) This is an advanced beginner crochet project with very few pieces for a character or animal hat so it’s not that hard to do in one sitting even. It makes a perfect fun gift for those that are a little into the darker sides of things, males and even Halloween costumes. This little guy kind of grew on me while I was making him up. I think he may be leaning more to cute than evil though. Oops.

Now that all your features are made, you are now ready to move on to the finishing off steps up next.

Evil Bunny Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern (15)

Finishing off:
Starting with your eyes, we are going to assemble the eye pupils and eye colors together into completed eyes before attaching them to the evil bunny hat. Take the leftover black (main color) yarn tail from one eye pupil and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew your pupil in place in the center of one red (contrast color) eye color piece. You want to place it so that it is long wise, up and down, vertical. Once it is securely in place, pull your yarn to the back of the assembled eye before fastening off. Repeat this process for your second eye.
Next take the leftover red (contrast color) yarn tail from your assembled eye and using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle sew the bunny’s eye directly on to the beanie. Since these are the only beanie feature, feel free to play around with the placement. You may like it more down low on the hat, in the middle or even up high. You can reference my pictures on where I placed the eyes on my evil bunny hat. Once you have sewn it in place, pull yarn to inside of beanie hat and fasten off. Repeat this process for your second eye.
Now take the leftover black (main color) yarn tail from one assembled ear and sew it on to the desired location with the  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle on your evil bunny hat. If you want longer hanging ears, place lower on the hat. If you want shorter hanger ears, place higher on hat. For head top floppy ears, place on top of hat with contrast color piece facing forward. You can also place the ears on the side of the head with the red facing forward more towards the top so that they will flop forward with peeks at the red also. You can see how I placed the ears on this evil bunny hat as requested by our male friend in my pictures. Once you have secured the ear fully in place, pull the leftover yarn tail to the inside of the hat before fastening off. Repeat for second ear.
*Tip from cRAfterChick: I normally mark the start and finish of my second ear with safety pins so that I get the ears perfectly symmetrically placed but I’m a bit OCD about them being even. It will drive me crazy if they are slightly off but it by no means is a necessary step. *
Take the time now to look over your assembled hat to check for any loose ends or tails you might of missed during assembly process. Take the time now to sew them in and fasten off.
All done! One super evil looking bunny hat ready to wear. I told you it wasn’t too complicated. :) Happy crafting!

Round 2:  Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st st and each of the following 11 st. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round.  Fasten off. (24 sc)
Repeat above process for the second eye white

This feature works well for toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month sized hats, do the following steps instead of above:
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 hdc in to the circle. Pull circle fully closed. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. Fasten off.  (10 hdc)

Eye Pupils (Make 2): using black yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1 before placing 6 sc in circle. Pull circle closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (6 sc)
Leave a long enough yarn tail to be able to sew it on to the eye white in following step before cutting yarn and pulling through loop.
Repeat process for second eye pupil.

This feature works well for toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month sized hats, make 3 sc in circle instead of 6 sc pattern calls for above.

Eye Front Assembly: using eye whites and eye pupils
Take the black yarn tail from one eye pupil from previous step and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the pupil on to one of the eye white pieces.  I centered mine on Round 1 of the eye white but you can place it wherever you desire.  Once secure, pull yarn to back of eye white and fasten off.
Repeat process for second eye.

Eye Backs and Assembly (Make 2): using main color yarn and assembled eye fronts from previous steps.
Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 from eye whites above but do not fasten off at the end of round 2.
Round 3. Ch 1 and turn. Place one completed eye front in front of the eye back you are working on, lining up the stitches.  Working through both pieces at the same time.  Place *2 sc in 1st st, 1 sc in next st* repeating * until 4 st are left.  Sl st in last 4 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round.
Make sure you leave a nice long yarn tail to sew the frog eye on top of the beanie hat before cutting it and pulling through loop.
Repeat process for second eye.

For newborn to 12 month sized hats, do the following steps instead of above:
Round 3. Ch 1 and turn.

Place 1 sc in next st, and sl st in last 2 st.  Sl st in last 4 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round.
Make sure you leave a nice long yarn tail to sew the frog eye on top of the beanie hat before cutting it and pulling through loop.
Repeat process for second eye.

Mouth / Smile: using black yarn
Main Smile piece:
Using black yarn, make a chain of 25.  Leave a nice long yarn tail so you can sew this on to the beanie hat during assembly.  Cut yarn, pull through last loop and place to side for now.

This feature works well for toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month sized hats, make a chain of  16 for newborn or 18 for other infant sizes instead of 25 pattern calls for above.

Smile Sides (Make 2):
Using black yarn, make a chain of 6.  Leave a short yarn tail so you can sew this on to the beanie hat during assembly.  Cut yarn, pull through last loop and place to side for now.  Repeat process for second smile side.

This feature works well for toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month sized hats, make two chains of 3 ch instead of 6 pattern calls for above.

Now you can move on to assembly steps below.

Finishing off:
Take the tail from one completed frog eye and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to attach to one side of the top of your frog hat.  Stitch it on securely.  When I place features like this on top of hats I stitch on top of beanie and reinforce with another set of stitches inside but it’s not necessary.  Once secure, pull yarn to inside of beanie hat and fasten off.  Repeat process for the second frog eye.
Using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle take the black yarn tail from the mouth / smile chain and sew it in desired location on hat front. I sewed mine in a wide “u” shape but feel free to change it up on yours. Once sewn in place, pull yarn to inside of hat and fasten off.
Using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle take the black yarn tail from the smile side chain and sew it in desired location on one side of the smile you stitched on in previous step. I attached mine in a bit of a curve. You can reference my pictures to see how I placed them on my hat.  Once sewn in place, pull yarn to inside of hat and fasten off. Repeat this process on the other side of the smile for the second smile side.
Now take a few moments to double check over your work for any loose ends or tails you may not of fastened off during assembly of your frog hat.  If you find any, go ahead and fasten off.
All done! One easy and cute frog hat. :)
